Horrible condition, worst condition I have ever played

It was sad to see the old Harrisburg North course in this shape! The fairways were rock hard under low quantities of grass. Lots of bare spots! The greens were just arratted with lots of sand on them. They were soaking wet at noon so the ball wouldn't roll without picking up wet sand which slowed down the ball and made pace impossible to guage. On top of that the plugs from arrattion were dumped right next to the greens which interfere with chipping when you miss the green. The fairways were so hard good tee shot were lost due to the ball running for ever. I would rather never play golf again than to play Lykens valley in that condition!

Rough Shape

Most fairways were in bad shape and ground very hard leading to very bad bounces. Greens were in good shape

Last played it around 20 years ago

I played here when it was Harrisburg North around 20 years ago. It was in much better condition then. Lack of rain considered, the greens were in decent shape and the fairways were fair with some issues. The sand in the bunkers needs redone/new sand and they might as well turn some into grass bunkers and save on maintenance costs.
The rough was mostly dormant or possibly dead grasses too all super dried out. There was no one managing the pace of play on a day the club tournament was going on. I experienced a great deal of waiting on the back nine so course management in terms of pace of play was poor frankly. It is too far out of the way with better courses in the area to come from Hershey so I will not likely go back unless a spring or fall tournament took me there and even then I would probably not return.

Worst fairways

I don't want to say to much bad, because it is record hot this July. BUT the fairways were the worst I have ever played. Hard as a rock, and bare as a baby's rear. What grass was there was straw. The greens, were actually great as were the traps. I know, was in 5 of them. I bet this course in the spring is a beautiful mountain setting with a gorgeous course.

Decent

Took advantage of one of the couple of decent days in January to play. The course is in pretty decent shape considering time of year. The back 9 was wet so we had to play the front twice. Looked like the regular groups were going out in front of is and they seemed to slow down in the last 4 or 5 holes. Greens were a bit bumpy but tolerable
